There’s a dachshund giving away free gin and tonics this weekend.
In return, the miniature hound hopes that Britons will be encouraged to ‘shop small’ and support independents this winter.
The sausage dog is giving away free G&Ts in an effort to lift the mood of the nation and encourage Britons to shop small this winter.
The diminutive dachshund who, despite the pandemic, is launching her online business at the beginning of December is ready to send 100 Save Our Spirits packages to lockdown-weary adults who find themselves in a beverage bind on November 20.
“Like many dogs during the pandemic, Delilah has been the perfect companion,” said Ali Redwood, 29, owner of the eight-inch high entrepreneur and fellow co-founder of Delilah’s Gin.
“Small businesses are the heartbeat of the UK economy. And with more uncertain times ahead, supporters of fledgling British firms could be the linchpin in keeping them afloat.
“Delilah’s mastery is in making people smile. We thought what better time to encapsulate her smooth and unique spirit within an artisanal small-batch gin and share it during these challenging times.”
Ready to #dashtotherescue, the smooth haired heroine is giving away the SOS packages on a first come, first served basis from 5pm at delilahsgin.co.uk on Friday to the first 100 who subscribe on the homepage.
Once you’ve got to the website, you have to register your details.
This involves signing up with your name, age – to check you’re over 18 – and email address.
Advocating responsible drinking, if you are one of the first 100 to register, the promising independent distiller will send the SOS package, including complimentary 50ml measure of
Delilah’s small batch distilled gin and can of premium tonic, perfect to raise a glass and welcome in a weekend.
Speaking on behalf of two-year-old Delilah – who is the equivalent of around 24 in human years – Ali said: “Although St Bernard’s are typically known for coming to the rescue in times of crisis, this is no ordinary year.
“When you’ve worked hard all week, there’s nothing like signing it off with a relaxing tipple,” added Ali.
